Dr Zoe Norris was the star of BBC Breakfast this morning – explaining how the Covid-19 vaccine roll-out will take place around the town from today.
Dr Norris, who is the Clinical Director of the Bridlington Primary Care Network, explained to presenter Charlie Stayte how local practice staff would be receiving a delivery of the vaccine today and how it will be distributed to care homes around the town.
Dr Norris was also asked how the vaccine roll-out would work within the local practices and she explained how challenging the huge operation would be.
She also discussed how the six practices were adapting to enable and prioritise the roll-out of the vaccine and how urgent conditions would continue to be seen, but routine and medications reviews and other planned work would have to be put on hold. This is to help surgeries concentrate on the logistics of the vaccinations.
At the end of the interview, BBC presenter Naga Munchetty, who is the joint host of the show, thanked her and asked anyone who sees Dr Norris today ‘to give her a big smile.’
*Practices that form the Bridlington PCN are: Field House Surgery, Manor House Surgery, Practices One, Two and Three at the Station Avenue Medical Centre and the Wolds View Surgery.
Those eligible for jabs over the next few weeks will be contacted by staff from their surgery.
